This virtual challenge, On My Commute, challenges us to portray what we "see" when we're commuting - whether to and from work, school, or any regular route.
A "commute" for our purposes is a route we frequently take.
As photographers, we are always learning to "see" differently. And when we're doing our life, we end up "seeing" a lot, especially when we're not photographing. This challenge is meant to bring us to the present when we're exercising our "seeing" muscles.
The challenging part is to try to portray what it is that we're seeing - by stopping on our commute, long enough to snap a photo :)
To join the challenge, make sure you're signed up before the start time of 7am on Wednesday, May 8th. And, as with previous challenges so far this year, if you RSVP to attend this event, you are making a personal commitment to take at least ONE photo according to your interpretation of the themes provided, and post at least ONE image in the Designated Album for this challenge.
You must sign up before the start date to take part in this challenge.
By signing up you commit to take at least ONE photo representing one of your choice of the items provided. You may take as many photos as you like, but you must post at least ONE image to the designated photo album for the challenge, and up to five images in total - one for each theme.
ON MY COMMUTE
Here are the themes:
2. Ominous scene

HOW IT WORKS
To participate, you must sign up before the start date of this challenge.
Your own personal challenge starts when you RSVP to join us on the challenge. You commit to taking at least ONE photo, based on your interpretation of your choice of the themes provided.
You must post at least ONE image to the Designated Photo Album for this Challenge, and you MUST use the Caption to state the theme used in your image. You can post up to 5 images, one for each of the themes.
No other photos are allowed. Your photos must be taken with your camera between the start and end dates of this challenge. If you cannot post your images on the day you took them, you can post later; there is no time limit for posting your images to the Album once the challenge begins.
Use of all of your cameras are welcome, such as SLR, phone, toy, and point & shoots. Computer post-processing techniques (crop, colour correction, etc.) are allowed. To make it more challenging, we encourage use of "in-camera" settings and framing and minimal computer post-processing.
All group members are encouraged to enjoy the photos that are posted by the participants of this challenge and add comments of encouragement and appreciation.
REMEMBER: we will NOT meet in person because this is a VIRTUAL challenge. There will be no judging and no prizes. If you sign up for the challenge, you are making a personal agreement with yourself to take photos and then post your best photos as laid out in the instructions.
Note: If you miss the start date and cannot RSVP, then you must wait for the next challenge... :)
